You nailed the lines the way I would pencil them in, with the exception of CalO. I just can't see him on whatever kind of line that is... energy I guess because it sure isn't a shut down line. Maybe Cal could turn the two little balls of hate into the scoring threats that they show every 25 games or so.

If Rads doesn't come back, I think CalO slots into the 2nd line and Leggy goes to wing.

Honestly, I don't see this team making a major move for offense other than re-signing Sully and trying to bring back Rads. In fact, at the risk of being declared insane, I think the right move might be to sign.... Bonk and a top 4 defenseman. There, I said it. Bonk can slot into the 3rd or 4th line with Wilson taking the other. More importantly, a real defenseman to play with Hamhuis would leave a solid bottom pairing of Klien and Sulzer.

This team, with Rinne in net, 2 shut down pairings and line combos described above can be a solid playoff team.
